Examination Application for Certification
as Certified Interventional Pain Sonologist

This application must be completed in its entirety. Attached, enclosed, or forwarded materials will not be accepted in lieu of this application. Supplemental documentation may be sent as identified in the following registration forms, or if later requested or required by WIP/BOE officials.

Since this application is quite lengthy, it is broken into 5 major sections and you can choose to complete one section at one sitting, save that section and then return at a later time to complete the next section(s). And you can repeat this process until the entire application has been completed. And you certainly can complete the entire application in one sitting if you so desire.

After you complete the 5 sections of the CIPS Application, the last steps of the process are as follows: 1) allows you to review your entire completed Application to make corrections/additions, if any; 2) has you make payment toward the CIPS Examination Fee of $2,500; and, 3) finally allows you to download a final copy of your entire CIPS Examination Application for printing and saving on your computer.
